This research guide provides a comprehensive summary of all quantitative research in the World Politics field published in scholarly journals between 1970 and 1991. Each such article is summarized in terms of the central query or hypotheses, the spatial-temporal domain, the measurement of the predictor and outcome variables, the data analysis, and the findings. Article summaries are arranged alphabetically by first author. This guide contains three extensive indexes. The first references articles according to the topic(s) covered; the second according to the states, dyads, and other entities used as units-of-analyses in the study; the third according to the authors of the research. Graduate students, scholars, and practitioners will find this book an invaluable overview of the quantitative research that has been conducted on World Politics over the past two decades.
